David Steinberg notes:

Entry for 14-Across, CLE, may not be accurate. The diminutive ending is -culus (or -cule, -cula); the -cle is an English translation. "Carbuncle," for example, is derived from "carbunculus," with the whole word being converted to English.

Also, entry for 58-Down seems not quite accurate — should be £sd (with £ for pound, s being shillings, and d being pence).
